When you think about a microwave you either think about your food being either too squishy or too hard. At least that is what I remember when we got our first microwave. I remember it being great to heat up water or warm your leftover casserole. I do not remember my Mom using it to actually cook dinner in it. I was trying to remember when we had our first microwave as I do remember them being very pricey for the average family to purchase. So I looked up some facts on microwaves and was surprised they were actually around much earlier than I realized.
When Did the First Microwave Come out?
You wouldn’t believe it that the first microwave came out in 1947 but didn’t honestly hit homes until 1970 for those that could afford it. The new microwave ovens were marketed that they kept your kitchen cool while still making dinner hot. This 1970 model cost $495. In today’s dollars, that same microwave would cost about $3,133. Amazing right? By the late 1980s to early 1990s almost every home donned a microwave.
In 1991 microwave popcorn got on the bandwagon so that anyone that owned a microwave could enjoy popcorn without the mess. As time went on more and more food places started offering microwavable options which now brings us to 2019.
